The Renaissance

The Renaissance, meaning “rebirth”, paved the way for a new kind of literature and a revival of the classical values and ideals of ancient Greece and Rome. During the second half of the 16th century, England was ruled by Queen Elizabeth I, hence the term for this historical era: the Elizabethan period.
